Hi, I tried to play some .mp4 videos that used to work on 2.6 on 2.7 but they don't show, is someone having video issues, did something change in terms of codecs? what kind of log should i look into?

Thank you.
I also have loaded up 2.7 on both my Pi master and remote. the remote will not play MP4   it will play fseq file in mulitsync . These were both re image versions. later tonight Ill go back to 2.6 try that then try up grades of remote first then master if those work do re image of remote first then master. try to find where it broke.

Awesome!  Is there documentation on the Rest API?

In general, if you have it running, go to:   http://ip.address/api/help   and it spits out a ton of information.

So far what I have found If I run 2.7 upgrade on both master and remote the MP4 works. If I use new image 2.7 on both master and remote the MP4 does not work   With 2.7 upgrade on master and 2.7 new image on remote the MP4 does not work   ran out of time to try tonight 2.7 new image on master and 2.7 upgrade on remote  that's for tomorrow night.

I am having the same issue with MP4 playback. 

If I image a fresh SD card with v2.7, MP4 files do not play.  When I create a playlist, add the MP4 to it, then play the playlist on the status page, there is no count-down timer that indicates the length/remaining playback time.  It stays at "0". 

However, if I upgrade v2.6 to v2.7, video playback works fine.

I figured out the video playback issue tonight and emailed Dan some info.  We could fix it with a new SD image or an update to the existing image.

If you want to fix it yourself, you should be able to login and run the following commands:

Code: [Select]
sudo cp /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin.fpp
sudo apt-get -y install omxplayer
sudo cp /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin.fpp /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin

That did the trick!  Thanks, Chris.  It also fixed my USB sound adapter issue, too.  With the v2.7 image, it outputted static "fuzz" on MP3 audio.  After issuing the commands that you provided, audio works on my adapter for MP3 and MP4 files.  Thanks a million!

I'll update the Pi image tomorrow.   Thanks for chasing that down.

I pushed a quick commit to master to detect the 3A+ based on your info.  I don't have an icon for it (not sure who made the current icons) but it should at least list as 3A+ in the multisync code.   If we need to do a 2.7.1, it will can be included, or wait for 2.8.
Will this work?

Dan did get this image added to the master branch so it should be in the next time we pull updates.

Thanks.

Yep.  I'll likely pull these changes onto 2.7 branch and release a 2.7.1 very shortly.

Once the the v2.7.1 image is available, I'll test a fresh install to see if MP4 playback and the projector plugin are stable.  Thanks for fixing that.

2.7.1 is tagged.  I am creating a whole new image specifically for the omxplayer issue.   Give me another couple hours.
